Orzo translates as barley as this pasta resembles grains of barley. It is used all over Italy often added to soups and broths. And as with grains, it can be used in salads.
Unlike other brands, Rustichella d’Abruzzo pasta can be cooked to taste because it is not hardened by the high temperatures used in industrial production.
It is dried for between 40 and 60 hours, depending on the shape. The semola must have great strength to with stand heavy pressures and the slow-drying process.
